snapchatI’m deeply passionate about all things health and wellness and the importance of the message that self care is selfless. I think real happiness comes from doing what you love, treating yourself with kindness and compassion and surrounding yourself with people who lift you up.

I’m on a mission to help people join the dots with their health and wellbeing, understanding that we’re all different and although we all ultimately want to feel fulfilled, content and happy there are many paths that take us there.

Join me on my quest to find the best food, products, people and places that not only serve us from the inside out but also from the outside in. Oh and don’t forget to have a little fun along the way.


Alison's energy, insight and emotional intelligence make her a joy to work with. She's an honest and powerful speaker who can hold an audience spell-bound, and she puts her all into everything she does. We've always been grateful for her support for the work we do in Barnardos, but more than that because she is a continuing source of inspiration and ideas.

Fergus Finlay, CEO Barnardos


“I first met Alison on the 'Walk In My Shoes' fund raising and awareness project. Ali was a rock of good sense and committed to sharing her story with anyone who needed help or could help. She has an intuitive personality and a need to open things up for discussion until she understands all aspects of the issues. Ali is a doer and I am grateful that she has given so much of herself to raise awareness for mental health issues in Ireland.”



“Alison exudes a natural warmth and openness and is never afraid to ask the difficult questions that we all want answered. It is this journalistic curiosity and search for honest answers that makes Alison a fantastic broadcaster”

SHAY BYRNE - Presenter of Risin' Time on RTE Radio One

“Alison has been a fantastic addition to the Allianz Active&Aware programme. Her enthusiasm and passion for Health and Wellbeing was palpable from the moment she arrived. Her presentation style is effortlessly engaging, exuberant and infectious, and most importantly inspirational as she demonstrates how everyone has the ability to take control of our wellbeing destiny.”

Mums are well prepared for pregnancy and birth but when baby arrives, nearly all tend to neglect themselves to focus on their precious new bundle. Minding Mum is a simple yet revolutionary concept – mums need to focus on themselves as well as their children.
